SAVOY -- A group is making sure kids have new shoes for school. The Junior League is teaming up with the store, Body N' Sole. They've organized a shoe drive for marathon weekend.

Organizers say dozens of students in Champaign-Urbana are below the poverty line. Shoes collected will go straight to them. It's an easy way to boost self-esteem.

Shoes can be dropped off Thursday and Friday at the Fitness Health Expo on the UI campus at the ARC. There will also be a booth at Saturday's big race.
